Particulars:
Figures in italic prior to 1950 are from source KB.
Data prior to 1920 differ because of border corrections within the country itself and with Poland.
Figures prior to 1920 are mostly based on the added totals of the Russian gouvernments Grodno, Minsk, Mohilev and Vitebsk.
Other figures according source PG 1960: 8190,0 ; 1970: 9040,0 ; 1980: 9650,0 and 1990: 10260,0.
Census data of 1979 and 1989 in table is de jure; de facto they are 1979: 9560,5; and 1989: 10199,7; and for 1999: 10045,237.
Source UN was used for population projections for the period 2005-2030, but those figures are not realistic any more because the population is diminishing instead of growing, so the compiler has adjusted these original figures.
